    I used Cabernet Sauvignon instead Burgundy and also, I mixed it 50/50 wine with water and after when meat was done, I mixed liquid and ingredients together in blender ( obviously except the meat ), I used vegetables, fruits, cranberies and baked potatoes as a side dish. You can also mix sauce with half and half creme. I made wonderful meal from moose meat. Thank you.  -  03 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was the best moose we've had. I used Cabernet Sauvignon for the red wine. Its great! Will use again and will recommend to all my friends.  -  12 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Personally I loved this marinade. My husband didn't like it at all. If you like the taste of wine, than you will love this recipe!  -  12 Nov 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
